It has been one year this week that i am getting serious in wedding industry. I love this job. I really love this job. That makes me kinda guilty because people supposed to hate their job. I thought job is just a way to make money. I met a lot of people, making a lot of friends. I travel to new place meeting happy people each week. That’s fun.
I graduated in UIA, majoring in Town planning under Kuliyyah of Architecture. I started photography during my last semester, early 2010. I like town planning. Making plan, working with AutoCAD. Finding issues and all that. It is fun and a lot of thinking. I like that kind of stuff. You have to be creative and logic. I never thought that i will do photography for living.
My first camera is Nikon d40x in 2007, bought by my father as birthday present. Starting from that i started to love photography. Then, on 2010 i upgraded my camera using all my PTPTN loan. To survive throughout the year, i am doing part time as potrait photographer. I advertise in my blog that i am willing to photograph anyone for free.
Much to my surprise, someone contacted me. So i did. and started from that, i did family potraiture for RM70.
And then it grows and i have to increase the price according to the demand.
I never had a real job. Means a full time job, in the office, working office hour. I never had. I dont know if i wish i had.I still remember on my final semester. When i have finish final exam. I asked myself, ” ok, what should i do now?”. Some of my friend already had a job at planning firm. And some are still looking. I only email my resume once after i finish studying. Because i still not sure, what am i going to do with life. Am i going to find real job, do same thing everyday, stuck in traffic jam every morning and during rush hour, politics and gossips in the office. Is that what i want to have in life?
So, i grab my phone. Looking at calendar. Calculating weeks that had been booked. Hoping that i can survive.
It’s not about the money, really. It is about what are you passionate about. What you really want to do in life.
What are you passionate about? Are you doing it now? Dont let your fear overcome your passion. Be it photography, modelling, dancing or anything. You always will be great at what you do as long as you love what you do.
Ive compiled some of my best images in 2011. It is hard to choose because there are just too many!. So i just randomly choose image taken in 2011 that i think the best. Enjoy!
